Actually already on the road. difficult child finally decided where he wants to play for the next season at his last deadline last Friday. And they want him there already for this Friday for medicals, training starts Monday. He will be abroad, but not that far, two hour flight. However we decided it would be fun to drive him there and take his stuff that way. However only personal stuff luckily, he will live in pre-furnished flat with the other young foreign team mate (apparently some Californian guy, freshly out of college and trying first time his wings in pro sports and having big European adventure.) Hopefully they will get along; they will share kitchen, bathroom and living room and both have their own bedrooms. Well, two hours flight of course turns to quite a many miles, well over 1000 in this case. We try to drive there without stopping for a night. Three of us taking turns to drive, we expect to spend over 24 hours in the car. Then a night and a day in difficult child new home town and I and husband taking little bit different road home with more relaxing pace. We were planning for a weekend in some nice European city this summer vacation with husband, but decided to make this road trip through smaller cities and countryside instead. We will be taking three days to drive back so we have time to stop and do sightseeing etc. I'm sure that part will be enjoyable, if our nerves and posteriors survive this first part.
